- Always hold your glass in your left hand when mingling so the right one is dry and free to shake hands.
- When in a networking environment with food and drinks, avoid trying to talk to individuals while holding them in both hands. Eat at a standing table first so at least your right hand is free to shake hands. It can be awkward and messy trying to talk while juggling your hors d’oeuvres.
